day 08: alta-museum (0 comments)
after getting up and making some hot coffee we drove to the alta museum, in which one can see ancient rock carvings. the museum is located at hjemmeluft. additionally the rock carvings were placed on the unesco world heritage list in 1985. the whole area is divided into two areas, each of them showing several stone carvings. to reach them one has to walk on wooden paths. while walking the slopes we met a nice taiwanese woman that is currently living in munich, thus her german was very good, and we had lots of fun while examining the area. additionally the museum offers several other exhibitions too. mostly about the history of the local area, from the stone age to the second world war. after the museum we were heading for tromsoe. tomtom, our reliable navigator estimated the journey to take six hours. at first we were very puzzled and thought of some system failure, until, at one point, tomtom said: "after 300m take the ferry". so we got on the ferry in olderdalen and left it at lyngseidet. after some kilometre tomtom suggested to take another ferry. this time from svensby to breivikeidet. finally, at 20:00 we arrived at tromsoe. so, tomtom was absolutely right - impressive! tomorrow we planned to visit the tromsoe-museum, the polar museum, and a cathedral. a side note: today was our first day since we crossed the arctic circle without seeing a reindeer - we miss them :( additionally we are too lazy to search for a camping site, so we park our camper about 25km away from tromsoe. it turns out it is some kind of an end-station of a local bus line, since every 15 minutes there is a bus arriving, waiting a few minutes, then driving away. we are going to bed early, after taking a walk along the fjord beach.
